The place was quiet, nobody knew me, and the reserve books were less in demand. The day before one of my history hour exams, I still hadn’t gotten around to reading the first book on the list, an endemic Harvard disease. I ambled over to the reserve desk to get one of the tomes that would bail me out on the morrow. There were two girls working there. One a tall tennis-anyone type, the other a bespectacled mouse type. I opted for Minnie Four-Eyes. Do you have The Waning of the Middle Ages? She shot a glance up at me.

A small ranching community is where the unearthing of past lives unfolds. We follow as Jessie and Connie discover one another and fall in love again. As they unravel their history, the jealousies and violence of the past manifest in the present and threaten their love.

Reviews about Lilacs for Carrie: A Love Story (7):
Tyler Is Not Here
I read this book in two days. One of those novels that become a highlight for the day instead of filler. The characters are well developed and the reader shares in the suspense as the plot unfolds.

Eroticism grows out of the love story; the sex scenes are lustful and romantic at the same time.

The characters in supporting roles are integral to the story; ranging from horrific, to people with whom the reader wants to share a glass of wine. Each one is so very well drawn and yet engages the reader to expand them with their own imagination. Also, some excellent red herrings!

I guess the best one can say about a book is "I would read it again", and "I want to know more!" This is one of them.

Judith St. Gaudens, where's the next book?

Looking for some good summer reading, I read this on the advice of a couple of women I know from (yep!) church. One of them warned me there were sex scenes that could be described as Lesbian Graphic - but hey, I've been around. (e.g., In grad school one of the Southern states paid me good money to read "RubyFruit Jungle" to a young blind Harvard graduate.) "Lilacs for Carrie" was a delightful surprise: a charming love story with true-to-life characters, suspenseful plot and refreshing dialogue. The sex scenes were well-written enough to be just as arousing as they were romantic. A good read with new perspectives on sex and love!
Rainbearer
Great fantasy book. Excellent grammar and syntax as well as the storyline itself. So sorry to read that the author lost her partner. I have also lost a partner and the chest-crushing grief is almost too much to bear. I highly recommend this book. Very readable and you won't want to put it down.

Spellbinding love story, exploring many facets of lives, present and past. Excellent writing. Looking forward to author's next endeavor.

A great book for a rainy weekend. Cuddle up in bed with some hot chocolate and have a great read. Very moving and authenticate lesbian love story with intertwining past lives make it interesting. Judith St. Gaudens is an excellent author capturing her audience.

I admit to some initial doubt regarding this novel's central theme of reincarnation, but I was also intrigued, so I decided to suspend my incredulity. I'm glad I did because I was hooked. From the get-go I could identify with protagonist Jessie in that I was also in the investment business once upon a time, and I was curious how her background would play out in the story. (As it turns out, only tangentially, but that is no detraction.) Lilacs for Carrie got my attention and kept it, and each evening I eagerly picked up where I had left off – truly a “page turner.” Notwithstanding one's opinions regarding reincarnation, the subject is handled deftly. The characters are most believable; I could envision them and even their mannerisms. However central the theme of reincarnation is to the story, it is by no means the only one. Yearning, loving, struggling, belonging – these and other themes common to the human condition are likewise explored adroitly. The author's grasp of grammar and vocabulary is refreshing in an era when too many authors hasten to self-publish without the benefit of editing or even beta readers. Although not published until the mid-2000s, the book was copyrighted in 1993, and thus the lack of intrusive, ubiquitous technology lends an innocence, even quaintness – in the best sense of the word -- to this charming story of unending love. I'm still agnostic as to reincarnation, but this novel does prompt me to wonder at the twin mysteries of life and love: Have I loved this person before? Have I lived a life before this one? Is this person my soulmate? Will we love each other again in a future life? If I must use only one word to caption Lilacs for Carrie, it would be “sweet” – not cloying – which is apposite to the title. As a postscript, this was my first lesbian romance novel, and I truly enjoyed how the author described the passionate scenes between the two women. I recommend this novel to anyone – man/woman/otherwise, gay/straight/otherwise – looking for a well-crafted love story that invites wonder. I hope Ms. St. Gaudens will produce a sequel because I feel sure many of us want to know how Jessie and Connie's new life unfolds.

I don't know how this wonderful book slipped through my reviews, but it did. I read Lilacs for Carrie a year ago, and I still remember it well.
This is one of those books so full of perfect descriptions you will smell the lilacs,you will will feel the warmth of the air as you travel with Jessie through the countryside, and you will feel the love between two women.
Oh, yes then there is the fantastic twist of time, present and past, which will keep you turning the pages, maybe even too fast, to discover the mystery of this story.
Well done Ms. St.Gaudens, and I hope to hear more from this author.
Lilacs for Carrie by Judith St. Gaudens is a fast, easy and fun read. The interplay between a sixty year old tragic lesbian love and the emerging present love hold the reader engaged in the mystery.

The descriptions of Northern Arizona's beautiful wild landscape and the architectural descriptions of a small town transport the reader to share the adventure with the characters

The description and dialog with the sociopathic Nickie Sue is frighteningly real and provides an insight into the mind of those that inhabit the edge of reality.

The character of Connie was well developed, however I would have liked to see a more developed Jessica.
